The Chemistry of Polymers, fourth edition, is a fully updated new edition of the well established and highly readable introductory text book on polymer science, ideal for those requiring a broad overview of the subject. Following on from the success of the earlier editions, The Chemistry of Polymers, fourth edition, continues to explore the subject from an applications point of view, providing a comprehensive introduction to all aspects of polymer science including synthesis, structure, properties, degradation and dendrimers. Recent advances in special topics in polymer chemistry and polymers and the environment are also discussed in an informative and up-to-date manner. Highlights include new sections on RAFT polymerization, polymers in drug delivery and polymer LEDs and updated sections on green polymerization, polymers for solar cells and polymers from renewable sources showcasing the recent developments and applications in this exciting area.
